Request from the Irish Blood Transfusion Services to illuminate City Hall in support of World Blood Day on 14th June 2024.


Motion in the name of Cllr. Alison Gilliland: "Dublin City Council recognises the immense historical significance of the Office of the Lord Mayor and the protocols and traditions associated with it. In particular DCC recognises the privilege of each Lord Mayor to work with the Office of the Chief Herald to design a personal grant of arms. These are subsequently displayed for historical reference in the Oak Room. However, DCC also recognises that there is no record of the story behind each crest/grant of arms. The Protocol Committee therefore agrees that DCC undertake a research project that details the design of each of the grant of arms and the representation/story it expresses and collates these into a series of books. These books would preserve the history of this particular and very special Lord Mayor tradition."
